Tips for rapid weight loss


There are a lot of tips to follow for rapid weight loss. It is of great importance to make sure that anything you do to loose weight fast is healthy and you need to take all the necessary measures to ensure that you will not gain the weight back once you stop the diet or weight loss program. This article outlines 20 tips that can help you in your weight loss efforts in a healthy and secure way.

If you want to achieve rapid weight loss for those extra pounds, you should be careful on what you eat and how active you are. Identify what needs to change and include in your lifestyle the following:

#. Reduce the calories you consume

One gram of fat contains twice the calories of a gram of protein or carbohydrate. Limit foods high in fat, choose products with reduced fat and calories, limit the starters and remove fat from meat. You should include in your diet products with fewer calories, like fruits and vegetables. Good selections are also foods rich in fiber. Try to turn from white to black bread and choose whole grain cereal for breakfast.

#. Watch the size of your food portions

The sizes of food portions have increased as the year’s pass, especially when it comes to ready meals and snacks. This means that we consume more calories, and adapt quickly to eating bigger portions and do not feel congested. Restrict potatoes, pasta, rice, fatty foods and sweets and select fruits and vegetables.

#. Watch what you drink

Stop the consumption of drinks containing sugar and alcohol, and replace them with water, tea, coffee or drinks with artificial sweeteners. Drinks with sugar add more calories in the diet and do not lead to the feeling of satiety or satisfaction.

#. Keep a balanced diet

Remember the principles of a balanced diet, to include in your diet fruits and vegetables (at least 5 portions a day), non-processed foods with more fiber, lean meats and dairy products low in fat.

#. Be more active

To become more active in your daily life does not necessarily mean to sweat in the gym. Instead of the gym you can utilize the following tips that can indirectly help your weight loss efforts:
Choose physical activities that you like and try to spend more time each week in these activities.
Incorporate more activity in your daily life.
Buy a step counter and count the steps you do everyday.
Another good way to become more active is to reduce the time you are sitting. At home limit the time watching television or sitting in front of the computer. At work, you can make regular breaks and if you want to talk with a colleague you can walk to his office instead of sending e-mail.

#. Avoid the ‘rapid weight loss diets’

These diets that promise rapid weight loss should be avoided. Initially they give you tips for rapid weight loss but in the long run they are very difficult to follow. Often these diets are very demanding and they are not providing the necessary nutrients to the body. Diets that promise rapid weight loss, are suggesting that some foods ‘can burn fat quickly’, they usually promote one or two foods, have many rules on how to eat and they overall seem too good to be true.

#. The Yo-Yo dieting

Many people that experience a weight loss have the tendency to regain their weight later. You can restrict this possibility by making permanent changes to your lifestyle and eating habits. The best tip to enhance your weight loss efforts is physical exercise. Regular physical activity and exercise plays an important role in maintaining body weight.
The following factors are important for permanent weight loss: changes in eating habits, regular exercise, realistic objectives and support from friends and family.
Although nobody would suggest that the Yo-Yo diets are good, there is little evidence that they are harmful to your health. However, the results are disappointing and may lead to reduced confidence and mobility.
You have to realise that in the period immediately after a weight loss you are at increased risk of gaining some weight and that you will need to take concrete steps to prevent it.
Remember to weigh regularly. If you notice your weight increasing, act immediately. Do not let a little failure to become a major problem.

#. Drink green tea

A recent study showed that green tea polyphenols and specifically katechines contribute to the increase of basic metabolism, helping the ‘combustion’ of fat.

#. Eat regular meals!

A daily portion of 2,000 calories for example, can be spread into 3 or 5-6 meals. But when there is division into 5-6 smaller meals each day (e.g. breakfast, snack, lunch, afternoon, evening) then there are small (not big) changes to the levels of sugar in our body and especially of insulin, which is important for our metabolism and good ‘fat combustion’.

#. For rapid weight loss do not follow deprivation diets

If you were determined to lose 5 kilos quickly, then you would probably follow a deprivation diet. Perhaps you are not eating anything, only grapefruit or cabbage soup every day. You reduce your daily calories to less than 1,000 and of course you see the pounds to go. But when you eat so few calories, in essence you train your metabolism rate to slow down. Once you stop the diet, your body burns calories more slowly and you will gain weight faster-than ever before.

#. Do not forget breakfast

Not eating breakfast seems a simple way to reduce some calories, but the result may be insatiable hunger for the rest of the day. This can lead to a non-planned snack in the office, in huge portions for lunch and this as a result will increase the calories you consume. But a breakfast, which is rich in protein and fiber, can reduce hunger throughout the day. In fact, research shows that people who eat breakfast every morning are more likely to maintain normal weight.

#. Do not underestimate calories of snacks

Possibly you are carefully measuring the calories you take in each meal and you forget about the snacks. There are some cookies in your office, a piece of cake brought by a colleague, the ice cream of your children etc. All this added together can sabotage your otherwise well-designed weight loss diet. If you take seriously the issue of calculating the amount of calories you consume then you better use a notepad to write down every thing that you eat throughout the day.
If the constant consumption of snacks can destroy your silhouette, to eat snacks wisely can do the opposite. People who eat several small meals and snacks a day are more likely to control their hunger and enable rapid weight loss. Snacks can help you keep your metabolism high, especially those snacks rich in protein. Nuts are a good choice and they are high in protein. Research suggests that people who eat nuts as a snack they tend to weight less than those who do not consume nuts.

#. Be careful of ‘light’ products

Light products with low fat may play an important role in your diet. Just remember that low fat is not the same as low calorie and this does not give you the right to consume a lot of such products. If you fill your plate with sweets that have little fat, you can eat more calories than if you had a smaller piece of ‘normal’ sweets. The best way to find out how much fat, sugar and calories they have is to check the product label.
Light food does not mean food with out nutritional value. Many light products contain large amounts of simple sugars in order to gain their lost taste. This immediately gives them calories, but is often less than fully fat products. The best thing you can do therefore is to carefully read the food labels that state, often in detail, the content in calories, but also the vitamins and minerals they contain.

#. Do not forget that drinks also have calories

When counting calories, most of us tend to overlook those in our drink. It is a big mistake, when you consider that some coffees and alcoholic drinks are more than 500 calories. Even the calories in juice and soft drink can be added quickly. The worst is that the calories in liquids are not limiting hunger. We will not eat less after we get many calories with a drink.

#. You need to exercise regularly

Exercising intensively for two hours once every fifteen days has no value for weight loss. Conversely, someone who exercises daily, even 30 minutes, can greatly gain from the various benefits of exercise to health, while simultaneously laying the foundation for maintaining a desired weight and enabling rapid weight loss.

If you do not exercise, you put the whole burden of weight loss to the diet. If you become more active, you can eat more of the foods you like and still lose weight. The tip is to find an exercise that you like. If you do not like the treadmill, try swimming, ballet, cycling or tennis, which burn more calories than walking. Spend time doing different activities to choose what you like and which you can spend more days.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of drinking diet soda?


Diet sodas are definitely healthier than regular sodas, but they have their disadvantages as well. The advantages are:

They don't contain any sugar- you won't gain weight from them and they won't raise your blood levels.

They contain a very low amount of calories- you can drink few servings of diet sodas without having to worry about the calorie count.

The disadvantages of diet sodas are:

They are not as sweet as the regular sodas, which some people will have hard time to get used to.

Artificial sweeteners used in sodas pose several health risks. For example, aspartame has been linked to causing cancer, Alzheimer, and birth defects.

Diet sodas can actually make you gain weight (indirectly) because people who drink it tend to look for sugars from other types of food.

Can I lose more weight if I work out with a medicine ball?


First of all, you need to have a basic understanding about losing weight. If you eat more calories than you burn, your body stores the extra calories in fat. That fat then amasses, and you lose weight. So, if you burn more than you eat, your body still needs energy; which it gets by burning the fat it previously stored. Working out with a medicine ball burns extra calories and can theoretically raise your calories burned to the point where your body will start to burn fat. This will not necessarily result in weight loss; however it will add to your daily calorie burn.

How can I gain weight naturaly without weight gain products?


Hi there,

Have a blessed day.

Here are the simple tips to gain weight naturally:

1. Figure out the number of calories that you normally consume in a day. Do this by keeping a food journal for a week. Refer to a calorie-counting book to add up the daily calories, and divide the total by seven. That will give you your average daily calorie total.

2. To gain two pounds per week, you'll need to add an additional 7,000 calories to your week, or 1,000 calories per day. To gain one pound per week, you'll have to add 500 calories per day. That may sound daunting, but by making some simple switches in your meals, you can safely pack on some pounds.

3.Increase portion sizes of healthy foods. Adding an extra two ounces of lean chicken to your dinner will give you an additional 100 calories. Adding a whole avocado to your salad will add 322 calories, according to CalorieKing, a diet and weight loss website.

4.Eat more frequently throughout the day. Adding a fourth meal of fruit, whole grains and nuts -- such as a peanut butter sandwich and a banana -- will boost your calorie count for the day by as much as 35 percent. Eat breakfast at 7:30 a.m., lunch at 11:30 a.m., an extra meal at 3:30 p.m. and then dinner at 7 p.m. Continue to include a snack after dinner.
5.Splurge on high-calorie treats such as milkshakes and smoothies. While they can be high in saturated fat and sugar, they can sometimes pack in as many as 1,000 calories in a serving. The "build-up" smoothies at Smoothie King range in calories from 180 to 1,035 for a 20-ounce serving.

6.Weight train to add muscle bulk, but keep in mind the aerobic calories you may also be expending.

Please be reminded with the following tips and warnings.

1.Try some relaxation exercises to calm you down. Fidgeting burns calories that you want to keep when you're trying to gain weight.

2.Do not try to gain weight by eating high-fat foods. This can lead to heart disease and gallbladder attacks as your body tries to metabolize the bad fats.

3.Check with your doctor to see if you have an underlying medical condition that keeps you from gaining weight.
Hope it helps. Goodluck.

Lost instruction and can't work how to get calorie count to start


In my tips and tricks page is a link to get a new manual.

If you have all of your settings correct for you (ht, wt, etc.) then all you should need to get a calorie count is heart rate and starting an exercise set. It has to be on and measuring to provide calories.

It appears my F6 monitor is not keeping accurant time on calories and heart rate. I like the watch but while checking my sitting heart rate is very low. When checking the heart rate on a blood pressure...


First you need to understand that the Polar system is a medical grade device and it is calculating calories based on specific information that you have inputed and heart rate data from your heart.

Most treadmills and other exercise machines use a much simpler counter that is height and weight based to calculate calories and are generally over generous with their numbers.

Depending on the blood pressure machine you are using, the pulse (not heart rate) is coming through the brachial artery, again not quite as accurate as measuring r-r variance from your heart. There is a ton of literature you can read if you are into the accurateness of the system, but I will sum up with saying that you actual calorie expenditure will be closer on the Polar than on most other devices outside of a hospital. As too the heart rate this is also true, so more likely you are getting inaccurate numbers from the other devices.

If you want pinpoint accuracy then you will need to use the Polar RS800 or S810 devices that measure and display true R-R.

How accurate are the calorie counters on treadmills and cardio equipment?


Here's what the Sole exercise equipment makers say about calorie counters on exercise equipment. it's from their E-95 users manual: "Calorie readings on every piece of exercise equipment, whether it is in a gym or at home, are not accurate and tend to vary widely. They are meant only as a guide to monitor your progress from workout to workout. The only way to measure your calorie burn accurately is in a clinical setting connected to a host of machines. This is because every person is different and burns calories at a different rate. Some good news is that you will continue to burn calories at an accelerated rate for at least an hour after you have finished exercising!"

My Garmin 305 wont record calories when I'm in the Gym. I select the "Other" sport mode, the little guy skiing, and It doesn't recored or even register calories? It records during my Jog sessions while...


The 305 uses distance to calculate calories. They sell a "foot pod" that you can use indoors, and that will count your calories by calculating the distance you have traveled. The problem however, is that using distance to calculate calories is so inaccurate! The calorie count that the 305 provides is almost always WAY too high. Other heart rate monitors use heart rate to calculate calories burned, and it is a much more accurate measure. My garmin thinks i burned 700 calories an hour today while i was snowboarding, and, while that would be nice, there is NO way it's true!!
